Emily Andre, 32, is the latest celeb to say she's open about being naked around her kids.

Not only does the doctor and reality star not make a fuss out of nakedness, but she's also mindful of the language she uses to describe her figure to instil body confidence in her little ones when they grow up.

"I don't make a show of parading around naked – and it's not like I do the housework with no clothes on – but if the kids happen to be around when I'm getting changed I don't make a big deal out of it," she told OK! magazine.

"I also think immediately covering up would draw more attention to it than there needs to be. But we have had conversations with the kids about who can and can't see each other with no clothes on so they know that it's only me and Daddy."

Emily and her husband Peter Andre share Amelia, known as Millie, eight, and little Theodore, known as Theo, five.

She added, "The other thing I have been very conscious of since they were young is not being critical about my shape in front of them as I want them to be body confident as they grow up."

This follows Frankie Bridge sharing that she and her husband Wayne are "quite a naked family", as parents to sons Parker, eight, and Carter, six. Bridge told the Loose Women panellists that she grew up in "quite a naked family" herself and has carried this on in her own family life, though would cover up if she felt they were uncomfortable.

Commenting on this, Andre said, "I don't think there is a set age or time and I think it depends on what you're comfortable with and what they're comfortable with."

Amanda Holden also admitted last year that her husband Chris Hughes and her daughters Lexi and Hollie, now 16 and 10, are 'used to' seeing her wandering around the house naked, with one moment in particular standing out.

"I was quite literally the Naked Chef," she told You magazine. "I got out of the shower, realised I was running late to get everything on the table so I didn't bother to get dressed.

"I just raced downstairs, got the potatoes on, the meat in the oven and my veggie option. It definitely made it more interesting."

Holden added, " It's absolutely par for the course for me to be walking around with no clothes on in our house. Obviously Lexi's a bit older so she does a bit of eye-rolling every now and again, but they're all very used to me."
